I am a member of the Environmental Science and Natural Resources Group in the Mathematics Department at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center. I have a BS in Engineering Science from The Pennsylvania State University, and a PhD in Applied Mathematics from The California Institute of Technology. My basic research interest is nonlinear systems, especially bifurcation theory and continuation methods.

My continuation code "Multifario" is available under an Open Source license from SourceForge

I'm also a member of The Jefferson Project, and environmental monitoring and modeling project on Lake George, in the Adirondack Mountains in New York. From my standpoint the challenge is the same -- to find and make visible complicated dynamics, natural or mathematical, so that they can be studied and understood.
